Our CBD Powder
The backbone of all our products is a hemp-derived, broad-spectrum, water-soluble CBD powder. This unique extract formulation
has many benefits over traditional oil-based extracts. Here’s a breakdown to further explain this CBD.
Our CBD powder is derived from legally grown hemp, which means that the plants it was extracted from contained 0.3%THC or less. This is very important because the source of CBD extract is directly correlated to the legality of the product.
Our CBD powder is a broad-spectrum extract, which means that it contains many of the other phytoconstituents naturally present in hemp extracts, such as terpenes, flavonoids, and polyphenols. The opposite of a ‘full-spectrum’ extract is called an ‘isolate’ which, as it sounds, has isolated the CBD molecule and refined it to ~99.9% purity. Full-spectrum extracts are superior to isolate extracts because of a phenomenon known as The Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect states that when the various constituents of the extract stay together, they have a synergistic relationship that amplifies the positive effect compared to each component separated from one another.
Normally, oil-based CBD extract has very poor absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. That means if you take CBD in oil form and swallow it into your stomach you’ll only be absorbing 20% or less of the expected dose. We convert our CBD oil to a water-soluble powder, which vastly improves absorption in the stomach. When consuming any of our UnCanny products, you’re absorbing roughly 90-100% of the expected dose! Going beyond increased bioavailability, having a water-soluble powder allows us to make more innovative products that go beyond the limited options of oil-based products.

At UnCanny, it’s our mission to empower people to live healthier, happier lives through the use of plants that regenerate ourselves
and the planet. We pursue this by increasing creating simple, versatile, and effect CBD products that are perfect for everyday use.
Founded in 2016 in Boulder, CO, UnCanny Wellness is committed to pushing the hemp-derived CBD industry forward by creating premium, innovative products for everyone to enjoy. We believe that CBD hemp extract is only one piece of the puzzle that is health and wellness and that it shouldn’t be used alone!

WE USE HEMP PLASTIC AND HEMP FIBER in our packaging
We belive it's important to practice what you preach, and we certainly like to preach about how amazing the hemp plant is. That's why we're commited to using it wherever we possibly can.
Our Barista Blend jars each include a custom 3D printed hemp plastic scooper. We partnered with a local 3D printing company to source the hemp plastic filament and come up with a design that perfectly fit into both size jars.
We use hemp fiber in the form of paper and cardstock for our maketing materials and packaging. Every box of single serve is made from a hemp blend cardstock, and every brochure is printed on hemp paper.
Hemp is an amazing plant that has been with us humans for thousands of years. We want to help return it to its rightful place as an ecological-multi-product force to me reckoned with.
We offset the carbon emissions of our Shipments 3x
There are some things that are unavoidable when operating a company that sells physical goods, and one of them is shipping.
We worked with Carbonfund.org to calculate and offset the carbon emissions associated with the shipping of all our orders. Armed with that knowledge, we decided to offset our emissions 3X over! We thought that it would be wise to cover our own emissions and then some in an effort to move beyond sustainability to a regenerative future.
WE PLANT ONE TREE FOR EVERY ORDER ON OUR WEBSITE
We partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization based out of Vermont that works with companies like us to plant trees as part of regenerative projects all over the world. The first tree-planting project that we're supporting is in Colorado, our home base.
Colorado has 24.4 million acres of forests which provide huge social, economic and ecological benefits. Forests support a sustainable wood products industry, diverse wildlife, fresh water, and ample recreation opportunities. But these precious forests face serious threats, including insect infestations, long-term drought, and forest fires. Unhealthy forests set the stage for exceptionally large, devastating wildfires that significantly increase risks of dangerous flooding, extreme erosion, degraded water quality, and reduced water storage capacity.
Why plant trees? Trees are powerhouses that serve several key ecosystem functions. They sequester excess carbon from the atmosphere and release oxygen, improving air quality throughout their entire lifecycle. They also provide important shade to the ground, allowing for other species of plants to grow and keep soil temperatures stable and healthy. Their roots reach deep and aerate the soil, improving ground-water retention and support healthy watersheds. Trees also provided niche habitats for many species of insects, birds, small mammals, and more.
